Springwise: Free App Lets Parents Create iPad Games For Their Children

Springwise: Free App Lets Parents Create iPad Games For Their Children

TinyTap lets parents and kids turn their shared experiences into personal and educational games.

Allie Walker

Games have long helped parents educate and interact with their young children, but the advent of mobile technologies has expanded the possibilities considerably. Enter TinyTap, a free app for the iPad that lets parents and kids turn their shared experiences into personal and educational games.

Creating a game with TinyTap – which is free on Apple’s App Store – is a simple matter of adding photos, recording questions and tracing answers. Parents and kids can do it together, and then the game is ready to play. Users of TinyTap can also share the games they create and browse for other ideas in the TinyTap store, where the educational games on offer can be fully personalized. The video below illustrates the concept in use:

With scoring built into the app, teachers can also use TinyTap to create customized activities and track students’ progress automatically. Meanwhile, more games, extended language support and an Android version are in the works, the app’s Israel-based maker says. Education entrepreneurs around the globe: one to get involved in?
